This Week’s New Releases on Netflix UK (8th March 2019)

Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

If you’re looking to watch a family friendly fun film with the kids this weekend why not give Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip a watch, this comedy sequel sees Alvin, Simon and Theodore embark on a cross-country road tip to stop Dave proposing to his girlfriend. If you want something in the way of a sci-fi horror film look no further than Await Further Instructions, in which a family’s tense reunion turns terrifying when they get trapped in their home by an unknown force, and sinister commands begin appearing on their TV. The Hard Way is an action film about a solider who tries to get revenge for his brothers death and we also have the live action reimagining of Ghost in the Shell where Major Kusanagi is saved from death and resurrected as a cyborg, and heads a task force hunting cybercriminals. Finally for those that like non-english language films we have the filipino love story Starting Over Again.

The binge worthy TV series’ this week include The Assassination of Gianni Versace, a dramatic telling of defining moments in Andrew Cunanan’s life, starting in childhood, which lead up to a 1997 murder spree that kills five, including fashion icon Gianni Versace. In British comedy Ill Behaviour, three friends kidnap a man who has opted for natural remedies over modern medicine to treat his cancer, and force chemotherapy upon him. There is also season 5 of the popular comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Crime drama Collateral, sees a London detective uncover a tangled conspiracy involving drug dealers, smugglers and spies. All whist investigating the murder of a pizza delivery man. And if Ricky Gervais is your thing then you may be interested in his new series After Life. Or for something more musical there is the latest season of American Idol with new episodes added weekly.

It has been a bit thin on the ground this week when it comes to documentaries with only three additions which are, Formula 1: Drive to Survive where drivers, managers and team owners live life in the fast lane – both on and off the track – during one cutthroat season of Formula 1 racing. The Dawn Wall sees cameras follow Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson as they take on the staggering challenge of free-climbing Yosemite’s most formidable rock formation. Finally for this week we have gun documentary Weapon of Choice which speaks to retailers and owners of the Glock pistol and aims to shed light on the politics of violence and its implications from Chicago to Kirkuk.
